Clarksville Police say 32-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier John H. Shields jumped over the bar at Strawberry Alley Ale Works in #DowntownClarksville, poured himself a drink, drank it, and left the business. As Officer Renken arrived at the restaurant, he unknowingly observed Shields in his vehicle but didn’t yet know he was the person in question. When Shields saw the officer arrive, he turned off the ignition and walked away on foot.
Shields was walking around the building when management pointed him out to the officer, who attempted to get him an Uber back home. Shields could barely walk or stand, and eventually it was determined he was even too drunk for a rideshare and he was placed into custody for public intoxication.
John Henry Shields, of Ambridge St in Oak Grove, KY, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on June 12th, charged with public intoxication.
